Program Submission Due Dates

NCATE accepts program reports from institutions at fixed dates-in the spring semester (due by March 15) and in the fall semester (due by September 15). Previously, NCATE required that program reports be submitted in the semester one year prior to the unit site visit. Over the next few years NCATE will transition to requiring that they be submitted three years before the visit. The following chart reflects this transition.
